Messer Eyes Keyes, California, for Carbon Dioxide Plant
The plant will provide 450 tons-per-day of CO2, an essential product for carbonated beverages, food freezing & chilling, and electronics manufacturing. The product is also used by a wide range of industrial companies in northern California and surrounding areas. The new plant is slated for completion in Q4 2019.
"This investment represents our commitment to strategic U.S. expansion to meet growing market demand," said Jens Luehring, President & CEO, Messer Americas. "We're dedicated to providing a reliable supply of industrial gases to our customers and look forward to breaking ground on this plant to further meet that need."
Messer currently operates two CO2 plants and two air separation units in California. Once completed, the new plant will support Messer's strategy to enhance CO2 network reliability for customers.
According to company officials, on March 1, 2019, Messer Group and CVC Capital Partners Fund VII acquired most of the North American gases business of Linde plc, as well as certain Linde business activities in South America.
With over 70 production facilities and approximately 5,400 employees operating in the US, Canada, Brazil, Colombia, and Chile, Messer today is one of the leading industrial gas companies in North and South America.
